The Grosvenor Shopping Centre in Chester welcomed winter sport to to the city with a Cupid Curling event that saw shoppers competing for the chance to win one of 500 prizes.

The indoor sport took place on a giant ‘love thermometer’ hosted by two curling cupids, where shoppers aimed to land on the centre’s heart to win a number of prizes including a spa day for two, a meal for two and vouchers from the centre’s stores.

Peter Roberts from Huntington bagged the star prize of a spa day for him and his wife Magda, while Pauline Garland landed on the target and won a £70 voucher for Individual Restaurants.
